Summer Poppy Block Card

     Here is a card using the Graphic 45 Seasons collection. This one is the first in my series of 5 summer projects. The fancy fold is a block card. The directions to assemble the base of this cards cans be found here

     The fence on this project is one of the first dies I ever purchased. I bought it in the summer of 2013 in Hot Springs, Arkansas. My Big Shot was still in the box back at home. The owner of the craft shop there showed me how to work a Big Shot and then proceeded to assist me in buying $250 in dies to play with when I got home.

     The edge punch here is one of my favorites. I got it on the sale aisle at Michael a couple of years ago. I use it so much that I actually try not to use it. Here is another example of my NOT using it. 

     The poppy on the front of this card is fussy cut and shaped with a flower shaping kit. 

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
  • Season's Patterns and Solids
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
